The Anwar Gargash Diplomatic Academy (AGDA) has launched its admissions campaign for the 2023-2024 academic year. AGDA is a leading center for developing and training future diplomats and leaders in the region. The academy is offering three programs this year: Post-Graduate Diploma in UAE Diplomacy and International Relations (PGD), Master of Arts in Global Affairs and Diplomatic Leadership (MAGAD), and Master of Arts in Humanitarian Action and Development (MAHAD).
The admissions campaign, titled “AGDA: We Invest in Tomorrow,” is expected to receive a higher number of applications this year as all programs are open for applications. The academy’s academic programs are designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge required to represent their nation effectively on the global stage.
AGDA is known for its academic modules that aim to develop diplomatic and leadership skills, research potential, and thought leadership initiatives. The academy’s goal through this campaign is to meet the growing interest among young Emiratis to study its programs, enabling them to play an active role in the UAE’s foreign policy and participate in international affairs and humanitarian work.
The “We Invest in Tomorrow” campaign offers Emiratis the opportunity to apply subject to certain admission criteria, including holding a bachelor’s degree with a GPA of 3 or above, a minimum IELTS score of 6.5, and completion of national service (for male candidates). Emirati mothers’ children residing in the country can apply for the PGD program, subject to additional criteria such as being 35 years or younger and willing to serve abroad.
Prospective students can apply for any of the programs by visiting https://apply.agda.ac.ae/ before the deadline of March 27. More information about the programs and application process is available on the AGDA website at https://www.agda.ac.ae/.
